Beitrag Los Angeles added the Falcons
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has wide-ranging powers to discipline teams Chris Lindstrom Jersey , coaches, players, and, yes, owners.Pending the completion of police investigations in Florida — and likely a league inquiry as well — Goodell could punish New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for being charged with two counts of soliciting a prostitute.The 77-year-old Kraft was twice videotaped in a sex act at a shopping-center massage parlor in Florida, police said Friday. The charges come amid a crackdown on sex trafficking in which hundreds of arrest warrants have been issued.Under the NFL’s personal conduct policy that states “ownership and club or league management have traditionally been held to a higher standard and will be subject to more significant discipline,” Goodell could fine and/or suspend Kraft from any activities involving the Super Bowl champions.“It is not enough simply to avoid being found guilty of a crime,” the policy says. “We are all held to a higher standard and must conduct ourselves in a way that is responsible, promotes the values of the NFL http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-kaleb-mcgary-jersey , and is lawful.”Kraft has been accused of misdemeanor charges and might not be required to perform more than community service and attend a course on the harmful effects of prostitution and sex trafficking. Goodell will be judging whether this was “conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in” the NFL.He’s made many such judgments before — including fining Kraft and the Patriots $250,000 in 2007 for filming other teams’ signals, and $1 million in 2014 for deflating footballs during the AFC title game. The “Deflategate” case damaged Goodell’s close relationship with Kraft, one of his trusted advisers on many NFL matters, including labor and broadcast rights.Even though Goodell is employed by the owners, at a cost of about $40 million annually in salary and bonuses, he views the commissioner’s role as one protective of the game and the league. If you embarrass “the shield,” you are punished.So he doesn’t often hesitate to discipline wayward owners, basically penalizing his bosses.Only one of them Kendall Sheffield Jersey , the Indianapolis Colts‘ Jim Irsay, has been suspended by Goodell, who replaced Paul Tagliabue as commissioner in 2006. Irsay acknowledged having a painkiller addiction in 2002 and sought treatment. The DEA investigated, but local prosecutors did not file charges.Then, in March 2014, Irsay was arrested near his home in suburban Carmel and was held overnight after he failed sobriety tests and police found prescription medications in his car. The police said the drugs were not associated with any of the prescription bottles found inside.He was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, along with four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance; police also found $29,009 in cash. He again sought treatment and in September 2014 pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated, agreeing to undergo drug testing for a year. Irsay also acknowledged he was under the influence of the painkillers oxycodone and hydrocodone when he was arrested.Irsay drew a six-game suspension and $500 http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-john-cominsky-jersey ,000 fine from Goodell.Last year, Jerry Richardson essentially was forced to sell the Carolina Panthers after allegations surfaced of his sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace. Following a six-month investigation by the league, he was fined $2.7 million by Goodell. Richardson, like Kraft, was a confidant of Goodell’s on league business matters.In 2012, following a long investigation into the New Orleans Saints‘ bounties system, Goodell fined Saints owner Tom Benson $500,000 and stripped the team of second-round draft picks in 2012 and 2013. But that was for an on-field issue — as was Kraft’s fine for deflated footballs.The current Kraft case, of course Qadree Ollison Jersey , has nothing to do with NFL play. It has plenty to do with Goodell’s use of his disciplinary powers, and there will be a spotlight shining brightly on whatever decisions he makes. THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams still haven’t made a first-round draft pick in the Sean McVay era.The NFC champions traded the 31st overall pick to Atlanta on Thursday night, picking up the 45th and 79th overall selections while also sending the 203rd overall pick to the Falcons.The Rams have four picks among the top 100 selections after making the deal. General manager Les Snead had expressed an interest in increasing his draft capital after trading away several key picks in recent years to bolster their veteran depth, and he found a willing partner in the Falcons.“Early in the process, we knew the pool of players that we might be dealing with” for the 31st pick, Snead said. “You always have a few favorites that if they did fall — you didn’t project them to — that maybe you hold pat and pick. But if those chosen few didn’t, we felt it would be better to add another third-round pick and have four picks in the top 100 instead of three.”Atlanta used the 31st overall pick on Washington offensive tackle Kaleb McGary.“A lot of the things that we anticipated played out,” McVay said. “It’s something we feel really good about. When you look at the entirety of having those four picks in the top 100 Rashan Gary Jersey , we feel really good about coming away with four good football players. … It worked out the way that we wanted to.”Los Angeles added the Falcons’ two picks to its 94th and 99th overall choices, giving the Rams one second-round pick and three third-round picks on what should be a busy Friday. The Rams traded away their own 2019 second-round pick last year to get cornerback Marcus Peters from Kansas City.The Rams have not made a first-round selection since 2016, when they traded up with Tennessee to select Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick. Snead has a history of big hits with his highest draft picks, which have included Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley.But McVay has transformed Snead’s roster into back-to-back NFC West champions during his two-year tenure without help from a first-round rookie. The coach clearly wasn’t bothered by the decision to move back for an extra pick on Friday, even with distinguished talent still available Thursday night at No. 31 in the Rams’ areas of need on the offensive line and the secondary.“It feels par for the course,” McVay said. “There’s going to be a lot of really good football players that are drafted (Friday). We are going to feel good.”
